Festival success in Ipswich
 Women's Football News 13 May 2012
Festival success in Ipswich - 13 May 2012 - Women's Football NewsSaturday saw the FA Girls' Football Festival, supported by Continental Tyres, Sport England and UEFA visit Suffolk FA Grassroots Festival, Trinity Park, Ipswich. 
More than 300 girls aged seven upwards from 36 grass roots teams from Suffolk and Bedfordshire FA, took part in the free programme led by FA coaches and aimed at encouraging girls to get involved in the game.
They were accompanied by Kate Longhurst, FA Women's Super League (FA WSL) from Chelsea Ladies. She interacted with the girls and several Q & A were held to give them an insight into the life of a semi-professional female footballer. Kate Longhurst signed autographs, had photos taken with participants, and took part in the coaching sessions.
Activities included the ContiWarmUp programme, skills and drills, matches inside an inflatable pitch, interactive games (speed cage & batak board), competitions, prizes and goodies for all and digital stations to entertain the girls during breaks from playing. Girls also had the chance to pose with the FA WSL trophy. The FA WSL mascot Berry was also in attendance to cheer on the girls and add to the atmosphere.
Sue Wells, Girls' & Women's Development Officer for Suffolk FA, said: "This event is a chance to showcase the female game. This was brilliant to bring the FA Girls' Football Festival and that a Women's Super League player like Kate Longhurst could attend. Today inspired loads of girls and raised awareness of the parents and coaches."
Kate Longhurst said: "This is great to see so many girls having fun and their enjoyment. There is a lot of interaction and activities. These Festivals are a great initiative from the FA."
Tim Bailey, Communications Manager at Continental Tyres added: "It is fantastic to be able to bring the FA Girls' Football Festival to Ipswich for the first time and great to have so many girls taking part. I very much look forward to continued success at the remaining festivals this season."
